Sanderson has played 11 games in his career, 10 of them in the Championship, not that bothered either way if he signs.

 

We need to be careful that we don't pack our squad with young, inexperienced players just because they might be 'hungry'.

 

We need to get the balance right, young doesn't always mean better, fitter, quicker - players can be of any age to display those qualities.

We’ve got Bannan, Lee, Luongo, reach, Borner, Rhodes, Palmer 

 

plenty of experience. About time we injected some youth into the team

exactly the type of player we should be in for. Lad knows where the back of the net is.

I wonder if we'll see Iorfa back at right back next season. I Can't see Windass as being a centre forward, and with Izzy Brown in the side maybe we'll be looking more at a 4231.

 

With the 3 behind the striker interchangeble with more natural wingers coming in for games where we need more width.

That side looks grim but with a couple of signings it will look not so grim

 

For me the goalkeeper is a massive issue. A solid keeper there and that's a start.

We do need more younger players in the squad, just not 'anybody' as long as they are young.

The prophecy was that a former players son will lead us back to the promise land, we simply assumed this was Hirst, hence the heartbreak. Based on that, it's a no brainer that we go for Walker

Be good to get the son of another club legend in. Liam's been feeling the pressure a bit since George left.

lol

All this talk of younger players coming in (and we definitely need them, and the club recognise this) isn't a guarantee that it will improve us.

 

We started last season with a few younger players, and apart from at the end where we were basically trying to make up numbers to fill the squad, most of them fell by the wayside.

 

Thorniley - sold

Baker - sold

Penney - loaned out

Bates - played 1 cup game

Da Cruz - played back end of the season but was poor

 

The other youngsters played their part, the likes of Hunt, Shaw etc, and may have a bigger role to play this season, but on the whole it is quite difficult getting consistent performances out of younger players, especially if they have hardly ever played any competitive football.

 

Yes we need to bring the age of the squad down, but not just any youngsters, we still need experienced players to come in, especially up front, and in Goal if we choose to make a change.

The difference been those ones you named we had seen struggle at this level before (Baker) were unknown (Da Cruz) or for Penney went to get regular games which was a better option. 

 

The likes of Sanderson, Leko, Brown have performed and done well at this level before. There is a gulf in the standard of them

As someone else suggested. Dujon Sterling might be just as good an option as Sanderson. He’s got plenty of experience in the EFL now and he’s an absolute unit.

4231 would be my preferred option too but it does mean trouble in terms of keeping some centre halves happy

Sanderson has played 11 competitive matches, that is it.

Yes and in those 11 games he has been consistent, and gotten good reviews. Baker played what 6 games and got so so reviews.

Pacey striker, big striker. Can't go wrong with that combo. Thing is wouldn't we need like for like back ups? I'd like to see one quicky ie Tyler Walker. One big chap ie answers on a postcard and a player who is some kind of combo of the the two ie some strong, quick prospect on loan from the Premier. Calculator out. That would be three in. Goals have to be almost assured with who we get in. We cannot have players with slim goals records. We have to sort the striker department out.

Strikers if we get Leko and Windass with Brown as 2nd fwds we have good options behind a top man. 

 

Chris Martin would then be my top target to lead the line, if we can then get Griffiths or Simmonds in potentially and if we can shift Rhodes and get another big man in then we have good options up top
